Thriving Resilient Communities Collaboratory (TRCC) is a U.S.-based network of regional and national leaders who use systemic and collaborative approaches to help communities become more thriving and resilient.

At a Glance:

Thriving Resilience is a two-word label for thriving, resilience, justice, peace, wisdom, health, sustainability, security, and other whole community visions. Thriving resilient communities grow and recover from problems, like climate change and natural disasters, to be stronger than they were before.

Collaboratory leaders work across issues and cultures to build healthier food, water, energy, economic, policy, justice, and leadership systems. The Collaboratory network hub brings these leaders together in an annual collaboration engine cycle.  Through relationships and trust, we learn from each other and form synergistic projects to build movement capacity. Some of our members include Art of Hosting, Bloom Network, Center for Economic Democracy, Movement Generation, New Economy Coalition, Post Carbon Institute, Shareable, Transition US and more. See our Member Directory HERE.

This site hosts an overview of our programs, impact and multi-stakeholder approach. Whether you are new to the resilience movement or looking to collaborate and increase your impact, you’ll find resources and connections here.
